‘The Wrong Boy’ – Suzy Zail
Recently we were very fortunate to be joined by acclaimed writer, Suzy Zail author of ‘The Wrong Boy’. For our Year 9 students, who are currently studying this text, listening to Suzy helped bring the story to life. This gripping novel, inspired by Suzy’s father tells the story of forbidden love within Auschwitz. It draws upon her family history and was written to keep her father’s memory alive. The students gained so much from listening to Suzy and it was a wonderful opportunity to ask thoughtful questions to help them better understand this confronting period of history, and the intricacies of love and family. We are blessed to provide such opportunities for our young people as they explore our world, and its many complications, both past, present and future.
